Development and service experiences of simple turbochargers for heavy duty engines

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

The development of long life, inboard bearing turbocharger using engine lubrication oil is described. The improvements in component performance, bearing life and ability for operation at high pressure ratios on heavy duty engines using NO. 6 fuel oils are examined and outlined. More recent developments including the elimination of a requirement for coolant in addition to heat rejection to the lubricating oil are discussed. The service experiences of these units are summarized and also the application of them to the low mission clean burn spark ignition engines on gas compression duties.
